The Ishangi Method™ is a pedagogical approach that makes proper conditioning and the intelligent exploration of movement an integral part of the dancer's training. In this way, we develop artists who are able to bring head, heart, and body to their performance consequently creating memorable experiences for their audiences and creative productive lives for themselves . Uniquely applying the technologies of GYROTONIC™, GYROKINESIS™, Franklin Method™, Pilates, and other innovative whole body processes such as The Enneagram of Somatic Intelligence, The Ishangi Method™ seeks to continue the tradition of dance excellence.Kehinde Ishangi earned an MFA from Florida State University.
